GNAW: Live Manifestations and Transmissions
Following a recent appearance at NYC's Apex Fest III, as well as several other shows, the city's harshest infected industrial doom unit GNAW continue to sonically erode landscapes, announcing more local live action and more in the coming months.
Kicking off Saturday, December 5th the unit will destroy Brooklyn's Club Europa alongside Chicago's Earthen Grave (featuring Ron Holzner from doom legends Trouble, members of The Living Fields and more, and virtuoso violinist Rachel Barton Pine) and Iron Man (heavy doom from Baltimore, featuring the guitar wizardry of Al Morris III).
Next up, GNAW want the airwaves! On Tuesday, December 8th the band will rape the city and all other lands via a live radio broadcast from WFMU 91.1 FM Studios, on Brian Turner's Show on-air and on http://www.wfmu.org.
The band will be concentrating heavily on composing their 2nd album in the winter months, but will break February 12th for a set at John Zorn's NYC performance space The Stone, dedicated to experimental and avant-garde performers.
GNAW features members Alan Dubin (ex-Khanate, OLD), Jamie Sykes (ex-Burning Witch, Thorr's Hammer, Atavist), Carter Thornton (Enos Slaughter), Jun Mizumachi (of NYC industrial icons Ike Yard), Brian Beatrice (Emmy Award winning sound design/mix wizard), and most recent addition Eric Neuser.
